Reactions from CannMed 2017

95% of attendees said CannMed 2017 met or exceeded their expectations.

CannMed exceeded all expectations. Thank you Medicinal Genomics!

Andrew, Attendee

The energy and positive reactions from all of the attendees demonstrated that cannabis has taken a turn to the “respectable” side of the discussion. A good part of it has to do with the professional way that the conference was held as well as the presentations that were given.

Perry, Sponsor

Physicians in medical school and in residency are taught that cannabis is a drug of abuse, and certainly any drug can be abused. But we are being taught that, and we are still teaching our new physicians this. What we need to remember is that cannabis can be abused, but so can all drugs. So, education is the key, That’s why conferences like this are so important.

Bonni, Presenter

I’ve been in cannabis science for 6 years. I’ve seen more of it concentrated here than anywhere else before.
